    AR optics options

    So im considering a different sight for my ar. Currently running a sparc red dot but want to get a bit more magnification.
    Considering a bushnell 1-4 or strike eagle 1-6 but there are probably others as well. I want a bdc type reticle and still want to keep a zero magnification option.
    I would appreciate opinions and suggestions.
    Main use would be pest control with maybe a little comp shooting as well.

    How about one of these from NZ Ar15 Primary-arms-1-6x24mm-ffp-rifle-scope supossed to be a bit more rugged than a strike eagle, heaps on You-Tube about them
    If you don't like FFP maybe one of these Primary-arms-1-6x24mm-sfp

    nzar15 has the primary arms range that seems to review well. The AR bushy isn't a true 1 power, the one I looked through did some weird stuff down at 1x mag.

    Nothing wrong with the strike eagle, glass is clear enough but they struggle a bit in low light (like most small obj scopes).

    The first gen Viper PST 1-4's pop up for a good price reasonably often and they are bullet proof little scopes.

    Loopy VXR series would be an option as well but again I don't believe they are a true 1 power

    I bought a Leupold Mark AR 1-4x20 not long ago, and like it a lot. See them come up from time to time

    If it’s pest control, then it’s hunting and the 1-4, 1-6 and 1-8x24 non flared tubes really do suffer from lack of light gathering ability.

    For hunting purposes a flared tube 2-7 or 3-9 power is far better in low light.
    Just my opinion.

    @Sasquatch
    The Strike Eagle not doing it for you? What are you up-grading too?

    Voltair once said: if you want to know who rules you, ask who you can't criticize.

    Xtightg always said: The older I get, the lighter I like the things I need to carry and the better I was.

    Thanks for the offer but went with a strike eagle as unity is a pre requsite and 6 is plenty.
